Responsible Tourism

In Puerto Vallarta we know that we can count on you, so together we can take care of our destination so future generations can continue to enjoy it, while you collect meaningful experiences that’ll be cherished forever. 

In Puerto Vallarta you’ll have the opportunity of leaving a positive footprint during your trip and support the different causes along the way, such as preserving the only urban estuary in Latin America, caring for the Olive Ridley turtle that makes our beaches its temporary home, and supporting associations in their community work whilst enjoying the natural charm and cultural essence of this vibrant destination.
Founded more than 10 years ago, the Network of Altruistic Associations in Puerto Vallarta and Banderas Bay is made up of 28 non-profit Civil Associations that you can gladly join.

Our Community

The heart of a community beats through its culture, its traditions and through each and every one of us. In Puerto Vallarta you will find many options to contribute to the different causes of associations that seek the common welfare, educational and health opportunities, and to preserve our culture.
